Port of Dundee (Dundee Harbour)
Thursday 8th March 2018
Aerial pictures of the Port of Dundee taken a few weeks ago. The port is used for a wide range of services including fabrication and maintenance of oil rigs. Extract from Forth Ports Website "The Port is investing in a £10million to create a new quayside with an industry-leading “heavy lift” capability, coupled with a significant onshore operational area at the port. The new quayside will add both berthing and land capacity at the east side of the port and will represent a significant increase in port capacity in the North East region. The construction process is underway with the quayside expected to be ready at the end of 2017. When opened the quayside will be 200m longer than currently and will be one of the strongest quaysides in Scotland with an ultra-heavy lift pad at one end. The quayside will have a strength capability of 80 tonnes per square metre. The port has been identified as one of Scotland’s top locations for renewable manufacturing by Scottish Enterprise under the National Renewables Infrastructure Plan and is within the Scottish Government’s Low Carbon Renewables East Enterprise Area."
